This year's Internet Measurement Conference (IMC) was held in Amsterdam from 21-23 October. In this article we highlight some of the presented work that we think is interesting and that the RIPE community might find useful.

About the author
Based in Amsterdam, NL
I'm a system architect/research coordinator at the RIPE NCC, where I work in the science group. I'm a chemist by training, but have been working since 1998 on Internet related things, as a sysadmin, security consultant, web developer and researcher. I am interested in technology changes (like IPv6 deployment), Internet measurement, data analysis, data visualisation, sustainability and security. I'd like to bring research and operations closer together, ie. do research that is operationally relevant. When I'm not working I like to make music (electric guitar, bass and drums), do sports (swimming, (inline) skating, bouldering, soccer), and try to be a good parent.

Humans are pretty good at finding patterns in network measurements, but it can be difficult to automate this so one can process many time series at the same time. Now we have an expert in the house who can help us with this.
In this article we look into the uptake of BGP Large Communities using the RIPE Routing Information Service (RIS).
On the night of 9 April 2018, DE-CIX Frankfurt experienced an outage. As this is one of the largest Internet Exchange Points, this is an interesting case to study in more depth to see what we can learn about Internet robustness. We plan to update this article if new information/corrections flow in.
Last week I attended the Passive and Active Measurement (PAM) conference in Berlin. In this article I present some highlights and take-aways.
This year's Internet Measurement Conference (IMC) was held in London from 1 - 3 November. In this article we highlight some of the presented work that we think is interesting and that the RIPE community might find useful.
When withdrawing an IP prefix from the Internet, an origin network sends BGP withdraw messages, which are expected to propagate to all BGP routers that hold an entry for that IP prefix in their routing table. Yet network operators occasionally report issues where routers maintain routes to IP prefi…
Based on RIPE Atlas measurements, we can illustrate if paths between different networks in a given country stay in that country. We can also provide sketches of interconnections between networks in that country. In this article we look at the situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
This post describes the result of an internship of a month of integrating an experimental data analysis method into RIPE Atlas.
Networks rely increasingly on Internet Exchange Points (IXPs) and carrier-neutral interconnection facilities that enable dense localised peering connectivity to handle the massive traffic exchange between clients and servers.
FOSDEM is an opportunity for developers of free and open-source software from around the world to meet in “real life”, every February, for one weekend in Brussels. Among all the conversations and experiences are many topics relevant for the RIPE community.
Last week, the Network Traffic, Measurement and Analysis Conference (TMA) took place in Maynooth, Ireland. A full week was scheduled, featuring a PhD school across Monday and Tuesday, the Mobile Network Measurements (MNM) workshop on Tuesday, and the main conference from Wednesday to Friday. We wer…
In this article we present a prototype web portal, which demonstrates the deployment of RIPE Atlas probes within eyeball networks based on Internet user population estimates per Autonomous System Number (ASN) per country.
BGP routing table growth is one of the major Internet scaling issues, and prefix deaggregation is thought to be a major contributor to table growth. In this work we quantify the fragmentation of the routing table by the type of IP prefix. We observe that the proportion of deaggregated prefixes has …
